There is still time to enjoy Gardner-Webb’s School of Performing and Visual Arts annual Faculty/Staff Art Show, on display in the Communication Studies Hall through September 30.  The exhibit features a variety of styles and pieces from a handful of Gardner-Webb’s most accomplished artists.

“I think the diversity of styles, subject matter and media at this year’s show is amazing,” said Bell, a professor of art at Gardner-Webb.  “There are some oil pastels and ceramics by Doug Knotts, five-foot fabric collage portraits by Paula Spangler Casper, serigraphs by Beth Singer-Knotts, portrait and abstract charcoal drawings by Andrea Worley, character drawings fro the theater by Christopher Keene, collage illustrated writings by Nancy Rogers Bottoms, digital manipulated images by Jim Biggers, and a few of my own pastels, watercolors, acrylics, and collages,” she added.

Bell explained that the show is a way to “hold us accountable as practicing artists,” and to model the Visual Arts majors at Gardner-Webb for the community and surrounding counties.  The exhibit is also a “teaching tool for art our majors and survey students,” she added, as many professors use the exhibit as fodder for class discussion and training.

“I would gladly discuss any exhibit anytime,” Bell insisted, “and I would encourage everyone to see the work for themselves!”
